Although held well into 2020, the awards show largely focused on the best of 2019, with Slipknot winning "Best Album" for We Are Not Your Kind and Rammstein winning "Best Live Band," to name just a couple of the victors.

Special live sets also came from The Hunna, Holding Absence, Heart of a Coward, Wargasm, Coldbones and Hawxx and an interactive pre-show was hosted by Kerrang! Radio's Sophie K. and Jon Mahon.
